It must be irksome to see the "wrong" machinery - but, being charitable to the production team, I guess they're trying to get the flavour of the time across.
OH is very much "in" to steam trains - and is highly critical of the wrong engine/livery etc in films. To the uninitiated, it doesn't make any difference (as I feel constrained to point out to him each time he complains )
I'm enjoying the series, though, but the thing that does irritate is the very poor editing: one shot shows trees in full leaf, and yet the next minute, it seems, we are being told that Christmas is approaching, and the background changes. I know things are put together after a lot of filming - but the "filler" shots are unnecessary imo and the swiftly changing seasons irritates me. (But I am still enjoying it!)
